Wiral family photographer

My latest family photoshoot in the Wirral was great fun, and along with playing at home, documenting normal family life, we also went for a trip to the beach. It’s great to photograph family life with no posing and staging photos. One of the great benefits of documentary family photography is making a record of real family life for everyone to look back on in the years to come.

When parents are taking photos of their kids it’s normal for them to ask their child to “smile for the camera” or “say cheese” etc. Mum and Dad understandably want a photo that includes their child’s face and a happy expression too. Personally, I find that most kids don’t have the best smile when told to do so, and the request for a photo stopped them from what they were doing; probably enjoying themselves! My documentary family photography solves this as I take photos of what is happening in your home, and leave the kids to enjoy themselves as normal.

What about Mum and Dad? Hey, Mum and Dad, you need to forget I’m there, and before you know it my presence will feel normal and you will enjoy the family photoshoot. I will photograph you in the same way I do the kids, no posing, I won’t direct you, and therefore I won’t make you feel stiff and awkward about having your photograph taken.

Below are some great examples of what’s normal for the Beland family. They play picnics with their three year old, she likes playing with her ice cream cart that she got for Christmas, and they often go to the local beach for a walk and to play in the sand. I think these photos will create better memories than a plain studio photograph, and there will be no stressful moments trying to get your kids to smile. Going to a photography studio can be strange for a child, however as my photographs take place in your family home and perhaps a familiar outside location it’s easy to relax and have a great time.
